    Perl script error
    Hi, if this is not the right place to post this question can someone suggest another forum or perhaps provide an answer.

    I am trying to run a perl script but I get the following error:

    Can't locate HTTP/ in @INC (@INC contains: /System/Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/5.8.6 /Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.8.6 /Library/Perl /Network/Library/Perl/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Network/Library/Perl/5.8.6 /Network/Library/Perl /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.8.6/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.8.6 /Library/Perl/5.8.1 .) at ./get_iplayer line 57.
    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./get_iplayer line 57.

    I assume that I may not have a full install of Perl, but I don't know how to solve this. All suggestions welcome as I have been trying solve this for a few days now.

    Go into Terminal and type the following

    find /System/Library/Perl -name "" -print

    If you don't get a line with that file in it, then it isn't installed.

    That looks to be a library that is including on my OS X 10.5.6 system which contains Perl 5.8.8. Perhaps this is a late Apple addition that you have to track down and install your self. Perhaps I installed it in the distant path and forgot. I don't think so though.
